Hi Folks-
I'm on the brink of resolving my roaming idle and high idle (see recent "Engine Trouble" thread).

I need to replace the large throttle body vacuum line on my 2006 9-5 2.3T. The line runs from the left lower rear of the TB to the left side behind the power steering reservoir and then forward to a connector mounted on a hanger on the MAF (all as viewed from the front of the car into the engine bay).

If someone with access to an EPC could pull the part number on that vacuum hose I'd really appreciate it. Many thanks-

If you are talking about the vacuum line behind the TB, may I ask why you are trying to replace it?

I have had this issue for a long time and corrected it as pictures below. The first part of the that vacuum line is probe to leaks and it attached to the other part of the vacuum line which has metal kinda line inside and very tough to leak.

See pictures of what I have done.. no more problem.

Interesting Approach

Thank you Ashiq, and yes, that's the line that rotted out at the throttle body nipple. Your solution is a bit more elaborate than what I ended up doing...which is described in this thread:

But it's accomplishing the same thing. I'd like to replace it just as I intend and expect to eventually replace all the rubber lines in the engine bay. These engines run hot! Thanks for the pics. I've got to get up to speed on adding photos. I'm behind the tech curve on that.
